Bad day for Team Allan.
Finished the day with a 1-3-1 record
Jorel and I arrived late so the TO paired the two of us where we did an Intentional Draw
Round 2 – Mono White Humans
This has been problematic for me ever since the Modern league began. The Humans have 4 maindeck Path To Exile and 4 Maindeck Declaration in stone, which often prevents me from sacrificing my creatures efficiently to Eldritch Evolution. Add to that the way his creatures get bigger faster.
Made a play error, because I didn’t see his Mutavault, and miscounted the damage on a crucial turn.
2 game Loss
Round 3 – UR Storm
Annoying game 1, Opponent played first and put into play a 2nd turn Goblin Electromancer. On my turn I offset that by playing a Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. On his turn, he offset that by playing another Electromancer. Sigh…,If only my Hareruya Orders had arrived, my Thalias would have been meddling mage instead.
Won Game 2 because of 2 Tidehollow Sculler getting all of his cantrips.
Won Game 3, because of Eidolon of Rhetorics and naturally drawing into the 2nd half of my combo.
Round 4 – Amulet Titan
Who plays Amulet Titan anymore! I have no Sideboard or Gameplan against this deck.
I made a mistake in Game 1, when I played Tidehollow Sculler and chose Azusa instead of Primeval Titan. That deck can’t win without the titan. But has several Azusa like effect.
I could have won Game 2, had I drawn my 4th land to cast Restoration Angel and Flicker my Reflector Mage to return to his hand his Titan. And win on the next turn by sacrificing Reflector Mage to Eldritch Evolution for the win. Alas, I’ve drawn a Birds of Paradise instead.
Round 5 – BW Tokens
Another bad matchup for me. and made the same mistake with Humans where I missed the BW manlands in my computation.
I can’t wait for my Hareruya orders expecially the Meddling Mage and the Magus of the Tabernacle.
RG Ponza report
Round 1 – draw with me
Round 2 – WG Tron
Blood Moon FTW, Jorel even sided out Blood Moon for Sowing Salt on Game 2 and still won
Round 3 – Merfolk
Lost to Aether Vial
Round 4 – UW Control
Won Game 1 Decisively, Lost Game 2 and 3 due to mulliganing down to 4 because of incredible bad hands
Round 5 – Bant Eldrazi.
Nothing remarkable, RG Ponza just dominated the match.
Eternal witness should arrive next week, we might put Plow Under.
